I have been running a laptop as a host. Expecting to send it to my daughter, I had it finish the tasks it was working on then I disconnected it from the project and removed BOINC.

Now daughter says no thanks, so I am trying to get up and running with it again. I installed BOINC and selected climateprediction.net but when I attempt to connect using BOINC manager (as a current user), after log-in it gives me "an error has occurred - see event log"

The event log shows "fetching configuration file from climateprediction.net" no evidence of any error.

I would like to get this host back on without it becoming a duplicate of the host it was. It appears in my host list as CPU T2400 @ 1.83gHz

Any suggestions on how to get past the "error"?

An attempt has been made to fix this, which doesn't appear to work - unless clif9710 tried to connect a while before posting ...
